Havas shows with three true stories that talking can save

As part of the second phase of the "Talking can save" campaign, three clips were produced that give courage and hope. They show why talking is so important in suicidal crises: Getting help in time and talking about what's going on inside you can save lives.


They are an extension of the three-year prevention campaign launched last summer by SBB, the Canton of Zurich's Health Department and other partners. The campaign aims to contribute to the prevention of suicides as well as to de-taboo the topic. Under the campaign motto "Talking can save," the focus is on assistance for people in suicidal crises and those around them - and on raising public awareness of the issue.

The three true stories are highly personal accounts of experiences that give hope: Momo Christen, Daniel Göring and Philipp Zürcher have survived a suicide attempt. The focus is on their experiences with personal crises and finding their way back to life. The films were realized by director Luki Frieden, who knows suicidal crises from his close environment. Thanks to the dedicated director and great openness on the part of the narrators, the three touching films were made possible.

The videos and all other information can be found on the central campaign platform Speech-can-save.ch. (pd)
